Oops! = Yum!

Have you ever messed up a recipe?

Well, I decided extremely last minute to make some crock pot Sloppy Joes Monday (from a cookbook, of course).  I realized about halfway through that I was missing an ingredient - canned condensed tomato soup.  Yikes.  I decided to substitue other tomato products, but I could tell it was going to be too thin for sandwiches (even after cooking it on high with the lid off...). 

Get creative?

So I thought, "what if I served it over pasta?".  Then, I googled it to make sure I wasn't crazy and found tons of Sloppy Joe Pasta recipes.  And so we had....

Sloppy Joe Pasta...........................extremely kid friendly too!

Topped it with cheese and served it with corn.  The kids gobbled it up and asked for lots more.  I am quite sure it turned out better than serving up Sloppy Joe Sandwiches.  So this "accident" may become a norm around here!  The recipe tasted excellent I might add!

That looks really good. I bet it has a thicker, heartier taste to it. I think I might have to try that recipe on purpose.
